with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in

, 45% of likely machine voters believe u.s. muslim relations are worse now than four years ago. just 18% say relations are better. that would seem to indicate a failure in the obama foreign policy. yet the president will point to the did he say mation of al-qaeda and the killing of bin laden to persuade voters he is not soft on the jihad. to be fair to president obama, opinions about his muslim outreach are inconclusive at this point. most americans don't want war with iran because that would send oil prices and possibly lead to world war 3. there is no way on this earth that israel is going to allow iran to develop a nuclear weapon. the israelis will attack the iranians. they will attack. it's just a matter of when. so americans must decide which presidential candidate can better manage the situation. things have not changed in iran since mr. obama took office, except the iranians are further down the road to development of the nuclear weapons. governor romney says he would get tougher with the iranians by supporting israel to a greater ex tents 6789 it's an incredibly difficult situat
. israel is threatened. what does obama have to show for four years? >> bill: isn't the only other alternative war? a military strike? doesn't seem to be anything else that he's not doing, although i do have one thing in the back of my mind, but i'm going to hold it back. go. >> nobody wants war in the persian gulf. but it looks increasingly like it is going to happen because we have been -- >> bill: would you say this is the time now to make it happen? >> no. let me make one thing very clear. there are no good alternatives in the persian gulf but the worst possible alternative is that iran would nuclear weapons not only because of the threat to israel -- >> bill: that's not worse -- you're saying that war is better than allowing iran to have a nuke? war is better? >> i think a well executed war thoroughly planned and determined would be better for the world than iran with nuclear weapons. >> bill: looking at iran and afghanistan, yie. kirsten, i'm sure you disagree. but you need to be precise in your disagreement. there is no doubt that president obama has not gotten anywhere with
weekend to defeat barack obama this year for president. think about that. if you look at the super pacs for romney and santorum and ron paul and newt gingrich, up until super tuesday they had spent a total of all the candidates of $53 million. and that one weekend they raise $100 million. they are huge to they will say and they will do anything. of course, it's a lot easier for the now since citizens united because you're not on raise unlimited corporate money but you don't have to report which corporations obtained which bills. but they also couldn't do it wi
that will say in the first two years of the obama administration, there was democratic control of both houses of congress, and the president had a hard time getting his legislative agenda passed. caller: it's because the filibuster in the senate, i mean, when you need 60 votes and the democrats only had 59, so he had a hard time getting even healthcare through. host: all right, paul, we're going to move to andy on our line from independents, calling from florida. caller: sorry, i'm calling from south carolina. host: ok, andy is calling from south carolina where. in south carolina, andy? caller: columbia. host: ok. are you in favor of divided government or one party? caller: well, i'm not so sure i'm in favor of either one, unless -- except if divided government is going to give us what it's given us now and nothing gets done, nothing gets passed. we got a credit rating downgraded because one party says my way or the highway. that's not good governance. it's not -- there's no such thing as my way or the highway. we all have to compromise, you know, in a marriage, the husband doesn't get everyt

of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the president keep promising to raise everyone's taxes, which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deploy it because they have so much uncertainty. >> i am not certain that the president is going to raise their once taxes. but you know what the growth rate was -- do a deal with the gdp growth rate was at the e
obama's strong emergence in ohio particularly this year is he went after republican parties, including police and fire and tried to strip their collective bargaining rights. people in ohio, in a stunning defeat for governor kasich voted that proposal down. but you know, i think that the unions in ohio are still very strong and their membership is feeling what they feel would be the wrath of a certain type of economics that governor kasich espouses that mr. romney would of course, follow. so i think there's that factor in ohio you have to remember. ohio next to wisconsin was the calderon of this battle between workers trying to have -- >> jennifer: you think the residual battle will carry forward until november? that emotion that people felt? >> i think so. >> jennifer: i want to get you into something more specific because this is being played right now in ohio, advertisement that romney is running on tv. take a listen. >> policies of the current administration's got is attacking my livelihood. >> they're wantin
last year's u.n. conference, president obama met separately with more than a dozen world leaders. this year he had no such meetings scheduled prompting criticism he is more focused on campaigning than governing. in his place, secretary of state hillary clinton met with almost 20 world leaders. jake tapper, abc news, the white house. >>> iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad has his turn before the u.n. delegates later today. ahead of his speech, ahmadinejad tells the associated press a new world order needs to emerge. away from american bullying and domination. he says despite international sanctions over its nuclear program, iran is better off than it was when he took office back in 2005. >> he is known for getting up at the mike saying pretty in -- inflammatory things. you will see some folks walk out when he gets to certain parts of his speech. we have seen this play out before. and the outcry over the nuclear program, he is saying it is an excuse by the west to dominate his country. talk about the nuclear program there. but it's -- he is a controversial figure. again you are
the surge and now, the surge troops, which president obama sent in the first year of his presidency, they are now on their way out, but the number of casualties continues to rise. the consequences will be the same when we pull out the troops last week, as i would have preferred, or at the end of 2014. unfortunately, there will almost certainly be a violent struggle for power in afghanistan, very much like what happened after a foreign occupation ended. in that case, when the soviet union pulled out, there was a six-year civil war until the taliban eventually won the war with the support of the population because they promised to bring an end to the war. when will this mean politically? we do not know. the fact that the u.s. says they are not prepared to go for an efforts to bring the taliban into peace talks, does not bode well for the possibility of the war ending sooner rather than later. what we know is that all wars, and as you said, the longest war in u.s. history -- every war and with some kind of negotiation, some kind of discussion, agreement. that can be now or at the end o

for the wealthiest americans which is what president obama wanted those families making more than $250,000 a year, individuals making more than $200,000 a year, what would the impact of that be? >> well, you know, that would hurt but that is something that the economy could digest because the -- total hit would be much smaller. of course, you are hitting higher income households who have other saving, other financial resources. they wouldn't pull back on their spending to the same degree. association you know, all else being equal it would be -- a negative to the economy in the very near term but it is something the economy could digest and -- ultimately longer run we need to address our fiscal situation. that is, we need government spending cuts and we need additional tax revenue. both of those things to address our fiscal problems. one way or the other we are going to need additional tax revenue and 2 most likely place to get additional tax revenue is from higher income households. >> $1.3 trillion deficit you definitely need something to bring that deficit down. bring the national debt down at
obama can do because he does not control everything. the first two years he had complete control of the senate and the house. he could have gotten jobs going. he could have done all of these things. he spent that time trying to jam through health care program that really was not very well received or wanted. that was a waste of time. that was a waste of an opportunity for him. i am sorry he did that. i am sorry for the people who believe there is nothing he could do. he could have done plenty. now we are going to suffer. host: there is a survey that was done this morning by a merrill lynch. this is dave. hello. caller: i make more money than i used to. i do not spend any more because of -- my occupation. i want to address the caller who was a waitress. she said her tips were worse. i never cut back on my kids. the one thing i did do was give more money to people who need it tips. the concept of as we rise we have to lift. we have a government that understands that as we rise up, we have to lift -- that is what i wanted to say. host: the morning, i was. joe, good morning. -- des m

for four years and barack obama has been president. i think that is insufficient. what people want, that is basically kind of a bullet point presentation. what voters are asking is, what did barack obama do while he was president to create such a weak economy? and they're sitting there waiting for mitt romney to give them that explanation. hopefully he will do it in the big debate next wednesday night. jenna: we'll see if he gets into specifics. always nice to read articles and thanks for joining us on the program. >> nice to be with you. jenna: gregg? gregg: police trying to determine what caused a man to open fire inside a business killing four people this morning. the latest on the deadly workplace shooting. >>> investigators blaming a bird strike for a fatal plane crash. details on the pilot's last-ditch efforts to save his passengers. jenna: right now 19 people are dead because of a plane crash in nepal. investigators say the aircraft hit a vulture just after takeoff today. you're seeing the scene right in front of your face there. this happened, again in kathmandu. the pilot

.s. recognition of statehood. that is something obama has not received enough credit for. within a year, we have both a jewish congresspersons, one republican and one democrat saying opposite things. your party would do better in the white house for israel. >> i certainly believe so. it is a very critical period. small things can mean an awful lot when the president has not been to israel, snubs the prime minister, has made outrageous claims. these have consequences. i think some of the arab states right now -- these are big blunders. >> you mean the book, thldest of the arab states? >> that daylight between israel and the united states. this is an administration of a great deal of rhetoric. let's look to the actions. >> that is an interesting point, congressman. there are people that say, it doesn't matter if there are nice photo ops. but does it matter what president obama is eating in jerusalem? >> it does matter. >> would you measure military support with the diplomatic aid? he may not love is real. >> i am not asking obama if he loves it, if he believes it is in the best interests of the un
of the candidates and barack obama? barack obama had by far the hardest media coverage. so they sit around and four years they claim the media is rigging the election. here is my question how did george bush get elected twice if the media rigs the election. >> jennifer: but you have to admit that somebody who is not affiliated with either side of the aisle, that look at this and the right is complaining, the left is complaining. where do they debt an honest assessment? >> campaigns that are not doing well, get bad press. if you run bad campaigns, you get bad prez -- press. just watch the news itself. unless it's fox news most of the coverage is very straightforward, and you can tell who is telling the truth and who isn't. >> jennifer: eric boehlert, senior fellow of media matters for america, thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" this evening. coming up digging up dirt on mitt romney is a hard job but somebody has to do it, and that's brett ehrlich. he's next. jennifer speaks truth to power. >>the bottom line is we need an amendment. >>now it's your tu
is that president obama and congressman ryan have almost the exact same proposal for the next ten years, save $1 trillion from medicare, not by cutting benefits or raising costs to elderly, but reducing payments to hospitals and other kind of providers. interestingly those two are in the same place on the next two years. romney for whatever set of reasons says he doesn't want to do anything in the next ten years, which means that $1 trillion that his vice presidential running mate would save he does not want to save. he's in a different place on the next ten years. so let's go to the period after that. what's the long-term plan that each of these guys has for cost containment. again, very interestingly, president obama congressman ryan want to achieve exactly the same level of medicare spending over the definite future. they want to increase by gdp plus 1.5%. they would get there different ways. president obama would get there by efficiencies, new methods. ryan would get there by having private competition. in terms of the actual dollars, it's the same. romney, again, we can ask why, does not wa
target president obama on taxes. the romney campaign has a new slogan. we can't afford four more years of president obama. during campaign stops yesterday. romney is accusing the president of raises taxes and planning more tax increases if he gets another term. >> who will raise taxes on the middle class? barack obama and the liberals already have to pay for government-run healthcare. you will pay higher taxes and more for your healthcare. >> vow, the president delivered -- now, the president delivered pizza yesterday to his campaign. both candidates are taking a break from the campaign while they prepare for the debate tomorrow night while their key figures campaign in the key states. >> the debate starts at 6:00 p.m. right here and it will be followed by a special edition of ktvu news. >>> president obama has announced plans to visit kern county next week to establish the cesar chavez monument. it will be located where chavez once lived. the president says the national monument would preserve chavez's legacy of giving a voice to workers. >>> :17 -- >>> 7:16. the "new york times" repo
at president barack obama versus john mccain, it was barack, four years ago. not that much as changed in the state of ohio despite the fact that john cage has taken over. >> well, i think romney has a tough road, and unless he wins ohio he almost mathematically cannot become president. he is right that unemployment, it's down in large measure because the president help save the auto industry and 35,000 jobs. fundamentally what is going on in ohio is what is going on another battleground states which is that mitt romney is a fundamentally flawed candidate. the middle class voters -- cheryl: how does he fought? >> rejecting because his basic assumption that tax cuts for the very wealthy will somehow trickle down to the middle-class . people are not buying it. going to create 12 million jobs without telling anybody how he's going to do it at the same time turns around and says there is almost half of the country that thinks he should not be president. cheryl: he has given us some specifics and we need to read it here more on his tax plans, but at the same time he has been set this -- spe
biggest trading partner since china. since president obama has exempted china from those sanctions. >> this china situation, always interesting to me it's always easy to talk tough on china in a campaign year. my point is it always seems to be once a president gets into office, whether republican or democrat, there is always a trepidation how much you push china. >> he has exempted russia and 18 other countries. the sanctions aren't what they seem to be. the sanctions have tremendous number of loopholes in them. you could make the sanctions much more significant and what he could be talking about and a reason he doesn't use the word military strike. ronald reagan wouldn't avoid military strike. i think jimmy carter the regime is not taken seriously. i believe when the iranians look at ronald reagan they saw something differently and released the hostages. >> seems like a dispute in the line in the sand. you're not taking the president at his word but a lot of people will. >> i'm not taking -- i have taken his word. the word containment means military power. sanctions are here. they
that will be standing up for us and wont be beholden to the superpac and romney and obama, and this might be the year that america says i've had it up to here with the big wheels of really super wealth running the show. we're going to vote for somebody that has some knowledge of the system and that is for the united states citizens first when it comes to jobs, not for pacs. if i had my way as president, and it would take tough legislation, we eliminate pacs and only have individual contributions. you've got the country members -- union members, they contribute to pacs but a few leaders decide how the money is spent. same with the corporate pacs that primarily back republicans, business pacs, you've got a handful deciding how the money is spent and a lot of times those contributed don't like how it's spent. now you've got the superpacs where a few people with very deep pockets -- and we don't even know who they are. the superpacs running on tv, who can tell you who's slamming obama this week? or who's slamming mitt romney? the day or two before? it's time to tell these people, look, we're going to tur
. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptance speech to do so. is this a question of simply restating the arguments he's already made for larger audience, or does he have to take this debate in a new place, in a new direction? >> i think the debate is really the game changer for governor romney. he needs to do very well. i think he will do very well. and it's all in how he communicates his message. i think he will do a better job than he has in the last two years of communicating that message. >> what makes you say that? i'm curious about the -- >> we know he's capable of it. he took it to newt gingrich, the best debater. >> let me finish my point. then you're welcome to -- for two years he's been trying to hone this message at a time when i think as a big surprise to a lot of people the president's doing better on the economy than he probably deserves to be doing. >> even in the polling. >> what makes you think in a high pressure environment, his first presidential debate he's
, a democratic town, not an obama town. to they want the industry to continue unimpeded in its spread of wealth and jobs. the first to a new steel plants have opened in the last four years. they produce piping for the fracking industry which president obama wants to shut down. ohio is not going to vote to give up its jobs by turning them over to the epa. if rob portman is a member of the ticket, that will solidify the ohio look, but i don't even think it's necessary. a very solid yes vote. the hardest of those states, virginia. virginia is hard to predict. the home of a very good senate campaign by george allen against a very good democrat, tim kane. both are former governors. there is a large military and reservists vote in virginia. that vote is sponsoring decidedly against president obama because he is definitely against the military, cutting what ought to be a 313 ship navy below 200 navy ships. cutting 20,000 marines and 8,000 army and another 20,000 sailors and airmen from the rolls. he has canceled the f-22 and numerous other weapon systems. he is messing around with military pay, benefi
